Fear Of All Wives [When Your Husband Looks Younger]

13 May

Hi everyone!

Today I would like to share my thoughts on… Husband.

Millionmars Le HusbandHere’s how it all started… One day my brother was asking me, “What has Kelvin done, he looks so much younger lately…

Oh really? Does he?

I must say he keeps it well, even though we are from 2 total different age groups @.@

So if you are, too, wondering what has he done to look younger…

Here’s the great exposé! 

Millionmars De Era 10During a short trip to Ipoh, we visited this aesthetic clinic Klinik De Era, an integrated beauty medical centre that provides cosmetic surgery, aesthetic medicine (non-surgical and laser treatments) and beauty therapy.

Millionmars De Era 7When I first walked in, I was really surprised by how good looking Dr. Koh is. I mean, she really looks like a Korean star to me.

Millionmars De Era 11We were warmly welcomed and ushered into the consultation room.

Millionmars De Era 9Dr. Koh briefed us about the extensive menu of cosmetic procedures, aesthetic treatments, and health services that Klinik De Era provides. From Botox to facials… they offer a wide range of services to enable their clients to attain desired perfection – in beauty, health, and wellness.

Millionmars De Era 12After the consultation, Kelvin decided to treat his acne scar, by having the treatment called Fractional CO2 Laser. It simply means to use laser to remove layers of skin tissue in a fractionated method and the columns of skin are removed, leaving the skin surrounding each column intact to aid in healing and so to help reduce spots, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, uneven coloration, skin laxity, textural irregularities and dull tone. (Sounds like magic right?)

Millionmars De Era 13So, here we go:

Step 1: Cleanse the face and prep for the procedure.

Millionmars De Era 14Apparently my MR. finds it very enjoyable. Look at the fishy grin on his face…

Step 2: Putting on numb cream.

This is to partially “numb” the face and reduces pain during the procedure.Millionmars De Era 15It takes about 30 minutes waiting time for the numb cream to start having its effect.

Millionmars De Era 16And it’s action time!

Step 3: Let’s put on the safety glasses.

Millionmars De Era 17Step 4: LASER!

Millionmars De Era 18Although I were not the one doing it, but I believe it can be really painful. Kelvin told me it felt like burning and we can actually smell the burnt skin~

This is how it looks like UP CLOSE!

Millionmars De Era 26After the treatment, Kelvin’s face looked all red and swollen! Doctor said this will go on for 1-2 weeks, and during the “down-time”, face will appear to be pink and sensitive.

Millionmars De Era 22Unlike conventional aesthetic clinic, Klinik De Era provides post-treatment therapy to sooth the skin. In a separate facial treatment room, a beautician applied aleo vera gel on Kelvin’s face to ease the burning sensation.

Millionmars De Era 20Then an “ion therapy” were performed to introduce cooling sensation to further sooth and cool the skin followed by a peppermint mask to end the whole procedure.

Millionmars De Era 21So for the next 2 weeks, Kelvin didn’t really experience any discomfort and I must say he didn’t really has his “down-time”.

Millionmars De Era 6Klinik De Era has 1 procedure room at ground floor and 6 facial treatment room at 1st floor. All injectable treatments will be performed by doctor and supplementary treatments will be done by beauty therapist.

Reception at first floor.

As for Le Husband…

(ok lah, the picture was photoshop-ed to be published in the magazine)

But his skin condition and complexion does look better after the treatment.

Kill The Rabbit

One in four women worry that they look older than their spouse.

That’s a pretty annoying fact isn’t it?!

Wanna know what do I think?

My husband looks so young because I make him so incredibly happy and give him nothing to worry about. He can maintain a certain sense of youth when he is in a relationship with me. *Pat on my own back* It’s hard work being such a delight but it’s the risk that I take to keep him looking good ;)

Or maybe it should be my turn next time to fix eye bags and nasolabial folds at Klinik De Era… Keke…

Thank you so much for reading and have a splendid week ahead!

[Pregnancy Portrait Part V] Being Strong

7 May

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

Millionmars RH8

And so, this will probably be the last pregnancy post and also the last episode of the pregnancy portrait series. (Sorry for posting this late, as I was too excited for the arrival… Hehe…)

You can read about the previous episodes here:

[Part I] I Am Still Me

[Part II] Bye Bye My Secret Dressing Room

[Part III] Happiness Starts From Within

[Part IV] Love Is Patient

It certainly feels like I have been pregnant for a life time long. And at the very last few days before the arrival of the baby, I have been thinking about how motherhood actually changes a woman.

It’s all about being stronger.

Millionmars RH11

Don’t get me wrong, strong is not about looking tough.

Millionmars RH10

If you were to simply look at my mother, you probably wouldn’t think she seems all that tough. Chances are she is wearing bright colors, sparkling jewelry, fresh lipstick, and a beautiful smile. But I’ll let you in on a little secret, beneath her feminine charms lies one strong woman.

It’s kinda like a quiet strength, which I believe to be greatest gift God has given to mothers. It is the kind of strength that builds people up rather than tearing them down. It’s the kind that inspires those around her to be more like themselves rather than more like her. It’s a kind that speaks of faith, hope, and love without a single word.

Millionmars RH6

Millionmars RH9

After becoming a mother myself, I secretly wish that I can grow to be like a mother like mine. She’s thrived, inspired, and found the silver lining in every situation. She knows it’s not what you do in life that matters, it’s how you do it. When you live a life of faith, kindness, encouragement, optimism and love, you can’t help but find success.

Since I was a little girl, I look up to her with awe. To her miraculous sparkle, to her steadfast spot in my world and I feel at peace. Thanks to my mother, I know that I’m right where I’m supposed to be. Not only because my mother believed in me, but because she taught me how to find strength and faith in myself.

And that’s a mother — a woman — with the best kind of power, if you ask me.

Millionmars RH3

The world is celebrating Mother’s Day this coming Sunday by recognizing the extraordinary women in our lives. I hope that it will inspire you to thank your own mother, or the mother who most inspires you.

And what’s your story on motherhood? Do share with us at the comment box below :)

【月子点滴】关于黄疸与哺乳的事

25 Apr

产后6天,一个要好的朋友打给我,问我,“唉,你不是在坐月子吗?看你面书的照片,干嘛没事每天出门?吹到风就不好了…”

2015/04/img_2784.jpg
其实我也不想的啊~
话说我顺利分娩后,医生们第二天就批准我和小宝宝出院了。

2015/04/img_2705.png
我记得我当时心里超高兴的。因为第一胎宝宝有黄疸所以我们在医院住了4天(想知道第一胎的故事可以点击这里)所以这次可以顺利生产,然后很快的回家,我真正的感到很开心呢~

谁知道…

当三天后带宝宝去医院复诊时,抽血检验黄疸指数竟然是19(正常为10)!于是医生即刻让宝宝入院开始 phototherapy。

2015/04/img_2717.jpg
我可怜的小宝宝就这样孤零零的被留在医院了… 结果我每天中午就要打电话去医院询问她的黄疸指数,然后安排下午的时间去医院给她送些毛巾、手套…

2015/04/img_2783.png
第一天:14.5 有下降,可是不能出院。

我开始涨奶了。因为宝宝没有在身边,所以必须把奶用挤奶器挤出来存在冰箱里。

当我安排把母乳送到医院的时候,被护士们拒绝了。原因是,因为我的饮食里含有姜。是的,她们说如果妈妈吃姜的话,分泌的母乳会使黄疸的情况更严重。

我想要喂母乳,那要怎么办好呢?

从中医的角度来看,产后食疗里有姜是为了要利水、驱寒。因为生了宝宝以后元气弱,皮毛舒张,身体容易受风。而且在这个阶段风邪入里会很难好,所以传统亚洲人有其炎黄子孙的体质都建议要吃。

但是如果吃的话,宝宝的黄疸会更严重,怎么办呢?

大家都说小儿黄疸是非常普遍的现象。每十个新生宝宝就会有六个有这样的情况(虽然我都没有听过谁谁的宝宝会黄疸啦~)。

所以在这里和大家分享一下我的做法。

2015/04/img_2725.png
小儿黄疸:想要喂母乳又要吃姜?

1. 亲喂5分钟。
2. 瓶喂配方(黄疸的宝宝需要喝更多的奶,把体内的bilirubin代谢掉)。
3. 用挤奶器把母乳挤出,存在冰箱。
4. 14天后,大部份的宝宝黄疸会恢复正常水平。在这之后才开始全亲喂。

这样的话,既可以补到自己的身体,宝宝黄疸不恶化又能吃得饱啦~

2015/04/img_2752.jpg #姜片鱼头米粉
(话说我妈妈煮的月子餐都超好吃的)

就这样,小宝宝在医院照了四天的灯才可以回家。可想而知作为母亲的心里有多忐忑啊~ 而且三天后又要回去医院复诊观察黄疸的情况。

2015/04/img_2779.png
可怜的宝宝,皮肤都黑了,而且还会脱皮呢。出世的时候有4公斤多的,现在只剩下3.8公斤(虽然还是很大啦…)我抱着她,心想:可以一起回家真好。

当妈妈以后,快乐变得很简单。

只要孩子健康平安,就是妈妈们最大的快乐。

2015/04/img_2687.jpg
当了妈妈以后,也渐渐的明白,在这世上没有最正确的带孩子的方法,只有最适合孩子的方式。

2015/04/img_2788.png
所以不需要一味的根据教科书上的育儿方式,也毋需理会旁人的指指点点,相信自己做为一个母亲的直觉,慢慢的掌握最适合自己和孩子的方式。不要觉得自己是个差劲的妈妈,毕竟,没有人一生下来就会做妈妈的。“妈妈”本身就是一门功课,用一辈子也学不完。《–最后一句是我妈妈说的

姐姐妹妹们,加油了!
